IBM's Watson Delivers Cloud-based Services - Converge Network Digest

IBM's Watson Delivers Cloud-based Services - Converge Network Digest | Security Analytics | Scoop.it
“IBM's Watson Delivers Cloud-based Services Converge Network Digest Watson Analytics delivers visualized Big Data insights, based on questions posed in natural language by any business user.”
Hossein Arefi's insight:
Wonder if this is what all the TV ads are referring to. "Thousands of businesses send billions of potential cyber threats to IBM for data analysis" Looks like IBM is doing a big push into security analytics then. Not sure how well "send all your sensitive data to our cloud for analysis" will be received but I'm quite sure this will raise awareness on security analytics a couple of notches. I saw three or for ads for it during the Broncos-Chargers playoff game!

Using the Science of Perception to Visualize Network Security Data

Using the Science of Perception to Visualize Network Security Data | Security Analytics | Scoop.it
The U.S. Air Force is working with VisiTrend on a network security data visualization that uses the science of visual perception in its design.

Via cysap
Hossein Arefi's insight:

One of few good attempts at visualizing network security info.

 

Most attempts by other companies use single dimentional graphs of group by queries ordered by count, making silly claims that plotting the results of such queries in a bar chart will somehow unleash the visual perception powers of the human brain and solve everything.

 

Nothing revolutionary here but I see good attempts to plot multi-dimentional info. Having interactive graphs that behave as a cluster in the dasboard - clicks in one graph adjusts the info in others too - is also very nice.
